Make A Real Difference In Someone’s Life

We all know the feeling of casual hunger, when you’d like something to eat and it’s an hour until your next meal.

The Wheatland County Food Bank is there for those difficult times when there’s no food at home and it’s days or weeks until your next pay cheque.

The Wheatland County Food Bank has been helping people since 1990 and prepares about 800 hampers a year for needy people who live in Wheatland County.

WCFB does more than just provide food hampers to families in need. The food bank works in cooperation with the Christmas Hampers program, providing school children and new mothers at risk, with the food they need.

For years the Wheatland County Food Bank has operated solely upon the generous donations of individuals, businesses and service organizations without the need to solicit donations. For this, the WCFB is extremely grateful.
